Sarah Palin's appearance as a guest host on NBC's Today beat Katie Couric's guest hosting of ABC's Good Morning America in the ratings battle on Tuesday. The NBC morning show has held its 17-year ratings lead over its ABC rival for the first two days of this week.

With Palin guest hosting, Today drew just under 5.5 million total viewers on Tuesday, according to Nielsen Fast National data. Good Morning America drew 5.14 million viewers with Couric, who is filling in all week.

Monday's Today, which included announcements about upcoming Olympics coverage and Palin previewing her Tuesday appearance, topped Good Morning America by 333,000 viewers according to the Fast National Data.
